Following the Upper Tribunal's judgment in the matter of Fish Legal & Emily Shirley v Information Commissioner & Others [2015] UKUT 0052 (AAC), South East Water is now subject to the Environmental Information Regulations (EIR) 2004.

This means that members of the public are entitled to request certain environmental information from us.

South East Water is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act 2000.
